Appalachian Storyteller in a Feed Sack Dress  

by Amy Ammons Garza



Born and raised in Western North Carolina with a grandfather who impressed upon her to save family stories, Amy realized early on how important it was to  save heritage. Therefore, when she began to write,  she had a purpose. The books she has written before this one, books that make up the trilogy of her family, took years to accumulate, and while she was busy writing, her whole life changed, almost in between the words.  Here is a compelling story of a mountain girl who found the courage she needed in her own life as she listened and then retold the stories of her family and her heritage, becoming the storyteller. (Each chapter is a story in itself)  ISBN#: 978-0-9971647-1-8
